Storyline

The Troma Team is proud to present THE RUINING, a striking new work by filmmaker Chris Burgard. Filmed over ten years, The Ruining succeeds in echoing the grime and grit of late 70's and early 80's horror cinema. Traditional family values are disturbingly challenged when two Los Angeles couples run into trouble on a remote mountain camping trip. Thirty years ago government drilling poisoned the water in a small town. Half of the town died. Those that are left are horribly addicted to psychedelic eggs bred by old Henry Behrens. When the strangers enter into his domain the stage is set for selective breeding and feeding of human flesh. Henry's 17-year-old daughter Becky is beautiful and thinks that she is a German shepherd.

poor, poor Hauser
26 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

After the offspring of an inbred redneck union of brother and sister is ditched in the fields of nowhere, a fellow God fearing redneck finds her and she grow up as a pet would. Twenty years later, a group of young adults on vacation in the mountains find that trouble is a brewing from the town folk hicks who are addicted to psychedelic eggs (which one of the gang partakes in) after an altercation in a strip-club. The film also boasts a cameo by the great Wings Hauser as Wings Hauser (DON'T call him Hasselhoff), don't get your hopes up as he's in it all of three minutes (if that)

Wow, this movie was extremely bad (even for a Troma film) not one character acted one iota resembling anything a normal person would act like. Without relating to any of them in any way, shape, or form, it made the hour and a half go by extremely slowly and i found myself looking at my watch on numerous occasions. I'm one of those people who HAVE to watch a movie till it's finish once I start it. On occasions such as this, that trait is quite the curse indeed. As for Mr. Hauser, well we all need money from time to time, so I won't hold it against him.....just this once.

My Grade: F

Eye Candy: Natalie Hays & Rachel Wagner both provide the T&A; an extra gets topless
